We are Milton and Rochelle McLelland, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors. We got married in 2000 and journeyed on the road into mental health counseling in 2009. We founded Roots Counseling in 2016.
We started Roots Counseling after spending seven years in community mental health. While our time there was extremely valuable, we didn’t enjoy the feeling of being stuck in an office setting and having to focus on a diagnosis and not the client as an individual. We saw people given multiple diagnoses without being any answers for how to get better. We want our clients to have the tools to truly create a life worth living and step out of the trap of their diagnosis.
We personally fell in love with Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills (the basis of our skills groups) and we’ve seen the benefit they provide to us personally and as a couple. Because DBT has provided us with the skills to solve problems and improve our own lives, we love offering that knowledge to others. We love that in the DBT group model we, as facilitators, are also group members and we apply the things learned to ourselves as well.
